. my question is on religion. how big of a role does religion play in the overall aspect of terrorism. how big of a r ole has it played in the u.s.'s policy on counterterrorism? >>the question is what is the role of religion either from the terrorist perspective or the combating counterterrorism perspective. from the terrorist perspective what we have mostly found is that adherence from al qaeda broadly misinterpreted and taken extremist views and perverted islam as a religion to be able to coerce and otherwise control their followers in doing things that are very much what the tenants of islam would say. we quoted a scholar and others that talked about the prohibition of killing innocent civilians. when they talk about the majority of people being killed by al qaeda are muslims contradicted the religion of islam and pointed out they were violating the tenet. so in general, helping to highlight the perversion of the religion in terms of the information we are doing has been helpful and that is what was done with the deadly vanguards report. it identified the problems that al qaeda wa
as well. we'll talk to her next. >> and later when asked about their religion, how many members of the new congress checked the box none. the answer may surprise you. stay tuned. this is msnbc, the place for politics. >>> the single biggest issue we have right now is the massive, massive debt hanging over the heads of our children and grandchildren. we need to address it, and the american people elected divided government. they expect us to deal with the problems, even though they are hard to deal with when you have different points of view. >> republican leader mitch mcconnell there trying to put the fiscal cliff in his rear view mirror but some on the right may not let him. mcconnell is now one of several republicans being targeted by tea party groups who say they are ready to take on the establish nntment again in 2014. with me is amy creamer, head of the tea party express. >> good to see you. >> president for the americans with prosperity, tim phillips said in part, quote, lawmakers will not be judged solely on how they voted on the fiscal cliff, but it is a big vote to get wrong. obvi
at the inauguration in my opinion. it would be more inclusive without it. sure, but i think religions should be taxed if they get involved in politics. like them or not, they have every right to be part of the process. give the dude the opportunity to put forth his ideas before you toast him. people learn and change. this from scott, i have no problem with the pastor speaking, although my opinion differs from his. i would welcome his presence at the speech. keep the conversation going facebook.com/carolcnn. >>> headaches, sleepless nights. bernie kosar former nfl quarterback has had them all after playing ball. now kosar says a new treatment has stopped his symptoms.  >>> as we got confirmation that junior seau did indeed suffer from the brain disease cte, another former nfl player who took multiple hits speaks with hope for his future. and we are talking about former browns quarterback bernie kosar. i hope the treatment he's getting really does work. >> yeah, so far it has given him great progress and i think that that's hope not only for bernie but for other players who might be suffering. b
are hard-core religion. they are going to do what they want to do. if they wanted some kind of change, the people themselves would have fought just like our forefathers fought for our rights. host: more from the front page article in "the wall street journal." joseph from cincinnati, ohio on the line for republicans. caller: hello. how are you doing? i am glad to be able to comment. i think this is a very historic moment. i am proud of obama and karzai getting up there. we have to end the war some time. my thesis is if we have the talent than -- taliban, terrorism has to be fought all over the world. this is the message they are both saying. it is a long drawn out war. it has to end sometime. if we are pulling out a little sooner, there will be critics saying a lot of different things. i really pray and hope this is successful. the education i think is very important. host: jim from tennessee on the line for independents. caller: i watched the press conference between the two presidents. karzai and his government are one of the most corrupt governments ever. we have lost billions of d
of religion and the right to bear arms protects it. they are going to win politically if this is not handled differently. >> when you say handled differently -- so yesterday, let me -- didn't mean to talk over you there. let me -- >> no, that's okay. >> yesterday vice president biden almost seemed to acknowledge the -- what arguably is maybe impossible politics now on capitol hill on this issue. of trying to maybe re -- reinstate the assault weapons ban. when he spoke of executive action, was that a mistake by vice president biden? using that phrase? >> well, i dash i don't think it was a mistake. i think clearly there is executive action that can take place to take the mental health issues. we have how many law, hundreds, thousands of laws in place that, quite frankly, aren't being implemented or aren't being enforced. we aren't keeping the records that people are supposed to be -- keeping records on. we need to keep the guns out of people we already know shun have guns in their hands that with mental health issues. so that's something that -- should be there. to ban assault weapons is goin
the world's great religions have, what according political christians, unacceptable positions or policy of positions, kind of getting to the point where christianity is an easy target. so the christian pastor goes. but when you talk about maybe a jewish rabbi or a muslim imam holding the same positions, now is the intimidation campaign of the left leveled at them? not as of now. christianity seems to be the easy target, but we're going down a slippery slope where any person of faith in a position of authority representing any kind of major faith is going to be subjected to this kind of intimidation and bullying campaign and that's not right. now, this is an extension of the word police. we've been talking about the word police in a lighter context with brent musburger calling katherine webb beautiful and-- >> she's beautiful. >> and it broke loose. in this case, too, you've got the political angle. it is the presidential inauguration, it's different, but we're going down the road where nobody can say anything. and if you go up to the line, it's considered unacceptable and you're out. >>
people here in washington, but the treasury secretary nominee has an extra challenge. his religion. he talked about that with cnn's candy crowley back in 2011, when he was director of the office of management and budget. >> you are an orthodox jew, which means that you can't use electrical devices, over the weekend, friday night sundown to saturday. how does that work in a 24/7 job? have you ever had to cheat? >> well, it's actually not cheating. if there's a matter of real urgency, it is totally consistent with my religious beliefs to do whatever i need to do to deal with it. the hard part is making that judgment of what's an emergency and what's not. what's really serious. and frankly, the hardest part is saying to yourself, that it won't change the outcome if i'm not involved. and i've found that there's an enormous amount of respect, has been from the time i was very young, working for speaker o'neil, from working for two presidents, to taking things that are of real importance seriously. and when the phone rings on saturday, i don't have to wonder whether i need to pick it pup the
% of the religion sterd voters in pennsylvania were not going to have the required form of voter i.d. on election day, and would have to vote provisionally. we found out, common law of court issued its ruling on october 2nd which was, what, five weeks before the election. coincidentally it was the first day we scheduled our photo voter i.d. training for election officials. so we went through with the process. a little difficult to train your poll workers for something that may be in effect six months from now. may be in effect a year from now. but the way the law stand right now it will probably be in effect for this coming primary. we don't know that yet. we trained about 4200 election officers out of the relatively, about 5000 that are required to attend training in pennsylvania. and, it was a success because we were able to reinforce the provisions for provisional ballot voting because as we have heard before, just relatively complicated process filling out all the paperwork. the last thing you don't want to happen is for a voter's vote not to count because an election official didn't sign off
, in mythical narrative's, whether it is creationism, or the fact that muslims are a satanic ritual -- religion. you cannot rationally argue with people who think the earth was created 6000 years ago and adam- and-eve used to ride on the backs of dinosaurs. the only thing you can do is reintegrate them into the economy. that is what frightens me. when you fall to that level of desperation, and this is exactly what tore apart yugoslavia with these ethnic, nationalist identities. there becomes an inability to communicate. a year ago we had several hundred white guys dressed in confederate uniforms margin to montgomery. half of that city is black. to carry out a re-enactment of the inauguration of jefferson davis. it cannot carry out a dialogue. that is what frightens me. we have powerful movements that celebrate the gun culture, the language of violence, that demonize the marginal and the week, whether it is african- americans, homosexuals, women, liberals. i see that breakdown occurring because of the economic disintegration, and having lived through it in places like yugoslavia, the rational ar
grandfather, more than any religion, my grandfather would recite the declaration of independence, the preamble, and the gettysburg address to his kids and we came to believe those things as the most important thing we believed then. we believe in justice and of the ruling bloc. e of laaw. our values are our greatest strength in the world, as ronald reagan said. i believe what moe and andy said that principals are not something you the paper. they matter when you are tested and you have to do it. i believe in saying that the worst places in hell are reserved for those who stand silent in the face of injustice. [applause] >> i will open it up to questions, if you can identify yourself and ask a question and wait for the microphone. >> i am with free-speech radio news -- you spoke about the road blocks from congress. can anyone on the panel talk more about the specific ones that were just renewed or past and what impact that will have? >> this is becoming a new year's eve tradition. congress passes the national defense authorization act and it has included language that prohibits using any of the
